What are your thoughts on attorneys who leave the law and become real estate brokers. Has anyone seen success there?

not a broker, but my boss became a loan originator after passing the ny bar/practicing. has since been helllllllla successful

Why not do both?

Because I strongly dislike practicing law. It is exhausting and don’t want to endure that type of stress on a daily basis for the rest of my life. Since leaving my firm when covid hit, my family says I am a new person. That coupled with the fact that I am 4 months pregnant, I think it’s time I made a career change.

I joined a new consulting firm and have been here for 6 months. Recently, a SaaS client (1k employees) that hired my old consulting firm reached out to me about a job opening - Lead BA working primarily to implement their benefit admin system for insurance companies. My current TC is 95k. Is it worth making the jump if the offer is north of 110k? Anything I should look out for? The client and coworkers were all nice, but I remember being stressed on the project due to limited resources.
